Smooth Insomnia Mix

Thursday night... or should I say Friday morning.
I know the title might not make any sense, but I'm starting to have a slight case of insomnia. But with a little bit of progressive, slower, smoother vocal trance tracks I could ease myself a bit to shleep mode.

And I'm sorry I haven't been releasing sets lately. I try to release one a week but with my ridiculous schedule the only time I find to do these kinds of things is late past midnight. There were a few messups here and there, but nothing too bad this time (at least I hope not). And I honestly think I am getting a little bit better!

But if you're having trouble getting to sleep, maybe this would help, like it did me! Give critique, leave comments, post your thoughts... I really want your input! I probably know where I messed up already, but it's always better to have it there written in black and white. As always, I hope you enjoy the set.

Your's truly,

1. Kaskade - 4 AM (Adam K & Soha Mix)
2. Deadmau5 - Clockwork (Cosmic Gate Remix)
3. Dakota vs. Marco V - Johnny the Unprepared Fox (Tsunami Mashup Mix)
4. Armin Van Buuren - Rain
5. Rex Mundo feat. Susana - Nothing at All
6. Cosmic Gate feat. Emma Hweitt - Not Enough Time (Club Mix)
7. Oceanlab - Miracle (Martin Roth Vocal Mix)
8. Ferry Corsten - Made of Love (Super8 & Tab Remix)
9. Armin Van Buuren feat. Jaren (First State Smooth Mix)

Running Time: 1 hr. 4 min. 25 sec.

Johnny the Unprepared Fox was one of the first three mashups me and Elvin did together. Most of the credit goes to him though, he's like the mashup genius in my opinion. Or maybe it's because he's been spinning for the longest time now. :P

Entertainment Portfolio - Episode 2

Post number two, or episode 2 on my ACCD Ent. Portfolio.

I totally forgot about making a titleblock for my portfolio. When I finished putting together the thumbnails to look at, I realized i did so without the titleblock, one of the most important aspects to an Art Center portfolio. But I started that just now and I made the "Dororo" title using the pen tool in Illustrator. Now I just have to make the rest of the titleblock.

Still working on Hyakkimaru. But i did thumbnails of his face in a neutral 2 copic markers and a brush pen.

These were really fun and quick to do (less than 3 minutes each) but they let me figure out what kind of personalities can be achieved with which faces. I really like the first seven, but I'm especially digging number 1,3,5, and 6.

Thumbnails for Ent. Portfolio

First quick five minute thumbnails for Hyakkimaru, the one who was sold to demons by his father. In the live action movie the blade Hyakkimaru used to kill demons protruded from his left arm. I wanted his character to be covered as much as possible, but for that reason his left arm garnered more of that. More details about him later.

Some demon concepts.

I promised I'd get some up as soon as I get my hands on a scanner right? Too bad it's a scanner from work so it's not practical for me to upload my figure drawing stuff here...

Sketched with an office pen (except for the one done with brush pen), and arranged in Photoshop.

By the way, from this point on, this is where I really need critiques, as this is for my entrance portfolio into Art Center's Entertainment program. Many thanks!

More to come.

Entertainment Portfolio

Finally found a story/concept for my entrance portfolio into Art Center's Entertainment department. I'm loosely basing it off of Dororo, a story about a boy whose Japanese warlord of a father sold to demons in a pact for power. And that's all I'll say about the story for now cause it's complex. Haha. But you should take a look at the live-action movie. Some of the effects are a bit cheesy, but the storytelling and cinematography is great.

Working on thumbnails now. As soon as I get a working scanner in order I'll have them up. One character at a time.
